The great detective has arrived! Detective Pikachu Returns is the long-awaited sequel to 2016’s very popular Pokémon spinoff game for the Nintendo 3DS.

Priced at $49.99 at Amazon, Best Buy, Target and Walmart, Detective Pikachu Returns for the Nintendo Switch is unlike any other Pokémon game. First off, Pikachu speaks, but he has the voice and persona of a middle-aged man who loves to drink coffee.

Secondly, he has a partner, a human named Tim Goodman, who is the son of Detective Pikachu’s former partner Harry, who went missing two years earlier. The pair go around Ryme City asking questions of the people and Pokémon around them, as they gather clues in a trusty notebook and solve mysteries in a point-and-click adventure.

Meanwhile, the game follows the events after a jewel heist in Ryme City. Detective Pikachu and Tim join forces to investigate and search for clues, while one mystery leads to another that will hopefully reveal the identity of the real jewel thief. Other Pokémon help as much as they can, but they only talk to Detective Pikachu, who has to translate for Tim.

Detective Pikachu Returns is the perfect example of a cozy game — just in time for the fall season. Although most of the game is text-based and character-focused with cute animations, it’s great for curling up on a couch with a hot cup of cocoa (or a coffee) on a cold and rainy afternoon as you look for clues and question all sorts of different Pokémon, such as Growlithe, Slowpoke, Ducklett, Magikarp, Snivy, Rowlet, Sudowoodo and more.

Detective Pikachu Returns for Nintendo Switch is out now and available for $49.99.
